Data Analytics as a Service unleashing the power of Cloud and Big Data

| April 26, 2016

Big Data and Cloud, two of the trends that are defining the emerging Enterprise Computing, show a lot of potential for a new era of combined applications. The provision of Big Data analytical capabilities using cloud delivery models could ease adoption for many companies, and in addition to important cost savings, it could simplify useful insights that could provide them with different kinds of competitive advantage. Along these lines, Data Analytics as a Service (DAaaS) represents the approach to an extensible platform that can provide cloud-based analytical capabilities over a variety of industries and use cases. From a functional perspective, the platform covers the end-to-end capabilities of an analytical solution, from data acquisition to end-user visualization, reporting and interaction. Beyond this traditional functionality, it extends the usual approach with innovative concepts, like Analytical Apps and a related Analytical Appstore. In addition, the platform supports the needs of the different users who interact with it, including those of the emerging ‘Data Scientist’ role. Architecturally, and due to the intrinsic complexities of analytical processes, the implementation of DAaaS represents an important set of challenges, as it is more similar to a flexible Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution than a more fixed Software as a Service (SaaS) application. Aspects like the PaaS internal architecture, the distinction between real-time vs. non real-time processing, the specific characteristics of the Analytic Services, the needs for data storage and modeling, the delivery over hybrid cloud models and several others, make its design a complex challenge. In order to validate the base concepts of a DAaaS platform, the Atos Scientific Community conducted research that resulted in a Proof of Concept (PoC), based on a concrete scenario for the Oil and Gas industries. This scenario explores some of the most important points that need to be solved in a DAaaS.

VMware Cloud Foundation 4: Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure for Modern Apps

Article | March 27, 2020

Now, we at DSA are amazed by VMware’s new releases. At the same time, while we feel the concept is great, we don’t understand if you run VMware on public cloud, is the cost higher than simply running on the public cloud like AWS’ native virtual machines?According to VMware’s Sanjay K. Deshmukh, Vice President and Managing Director for Southeast Asia and Korea, “If you look at a total cost of ownership for a customer to run or to migrate an existing application to cloud and you compare that in situations where they run it on native cloud and VMware cloud (VMware cloud running on AWS or any provider), when you compare this two, we have seen our customers able to reduce their total cost of ownership to the upwards of about 25 to 30%.To be specific, Sanjay said the savings are, they don’t have to re-platform any of their applications in order to run in the cloud. Customers on their journey of application modernisation or moving applications to cloud will find that the amount of effort cost and energy they are saving in re-platforming and rearchitecting their applications to the cloud is massive. The costs are upward of a million-dollar per applications or more depending on the complexity of the application.

How to leverage the value of edge network opportunities

Article | February 17, 2020

The network computing chain faces a changing reality over the coming years. According to the latest version of the Ericsson Mobility Report, a surge in consumer device capabilities and data-intensive content will see global data traffic rise fourfold by 2025. Industries, entering the fray for the first time, will place ultra-low-latency and high-privacy demands on the network through time-critical and massive-data use cases such as autonomous transport, remote robotics, smart factories and cross reality.In all of these cases, the place at which the data is processed whether it be in a centralized data center or at the edge of cloud will have an immense impact on both latency and how the massive amounts of data are managed. Not only do these factors impact enterprise and network efficiency, but they will soon be critical in safeguarding human life.
